Subject: So So
I have never read a story before where the police were so much abused by the bad guys, from being kidnapped to being way laid. It got to be silly and all too expected.

Subject: I liked this story
A shot rings out in the night, and a witness calls the police. Investigating the room where the shot was heard, the police find no body, and it is the witness who finds a pool of blood.
A girl near the room heard nothing, but the police notice a pinprick bruise on her arm. Clearly something sinister is going on. What is the secret of the doings in Sheridan Road?

I found this one held my attention. The reader was also excellent, as was the quality of the recordings. Enjoy!

Subject: Fun Chicago Detective Story!
This is a wonderful detective story. The criminal gang and the references to "hootch" reminded me of the days of Al Capone and the references to Chicago streets, buildings and parks were spot on. I loved the twist at the end - surprising but well tied in to make a fitting and believable ending.

Overall, a quickly moving, engaging and light story. Jo Smallheer does an excellent job of reading this solo Librivox project. Her voicing really adds to the characters and the flow of the narrative.
